NFL.com: Ladell Betts to Saints


Recommended Posts

"The New Orleans Saints have re-signed Ladell Betts to help reinforce a running back corps depleted by the loss of Reggie Bush, a league source told NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora on Wednesday. Betts, who has spent the past eight seasons with the Washington Redskins, worked out for the Saints earlier this week. Betts rushed for a career-best 1,154 yards in 2006 and was briefly with the Saints during training camp."


** I saw that someone had mentioned bring Betts back in place of LJ for the skins...too late. Glad to see Betts getting a shot with a successful team finally.

Maybe, but last year it seemed like the Saints used Running Back By Committee a lot.

They used Pierre Thomas between the 20s, Bush as a glorified receiver, and Mike Bell was the goal line back. Betts isn't a goal line back, as demonstrated week 3 in '07 vs. the Giants, and Thomas is a better receiving back than Betts.
